Yusuf Ali

Yusuf Ali 5018 Cf. xlvi. 21-26. The point here is that the 'Ad were a gifted people: Allah had given them talents and material wealth: but when they defied Allah, they and all their belongings were destroyed in a night, by a hurricane which they thought was bringing them the rain to which they were looking forward. How marvellously Allah's Providence works, to help the good and destroy the wicked!

 lit., ‘a barren wind,’ since the wind was not productive—it did not carry rain or fertilize trees.
